First! :thumbup:

Is Howard in goal? I've been hearing that Ozzie's going to start.

Howard will be in against the Ducks, Osgood will go against LA.

Chris Osgood will return to the lineup Friday as Jimmy Howard's backup when the Detroit Red Wings visit the Anaheim Ducks. Osgood, out since Nov. 1 with a strained groin, will start Saturday in Los Angeles.

To make room for Osgood, the Red Wings on Wednesday reassigned goalie Joey MacDonald to the Grand Rapids Griffins. MacDonald, 30, made no starts and only one relief appearance during his stint in Detroit, which began Oct. 28 when Howard was hurt. MacDonald served as Detroit's backup goaltender for 15 games.

Osgood last appeared in net for Detroit in a 5-2 win against the Nashville Predators on Oct. 30.

i feel like ozzie should be in for anaheim, and howard in for LA. anaheim is the lesser of the two teams IMO, hopefully ozzie is ready

Ryan-Getzlaf-Perry is a scary good line. Looking forward to seeing Z and D shut them down. No doubt the Wings are the better team, I hope to see a strong 60 minute effort and for our bigger guys to not let them push us around.

Great GDT, as always.

Go Wings! My heart is hoping for the best while my head is saying they'll be lucky if they salvage one point out of this game.

I hope Osgood is ready as well. I've got tix for Saturday night's game in LA. First time in years that I'll be attending a hockey game as a fan instead of media.

Is Babs going for the "sure win" again, like he did for the Western Canada trip? (i.e. get that win in Edmonton, and even if the Wings lose in Van, they still got 4 of 6 pts) That mentality is an interesting one... trying to stockpile some points early in the season!

It's going to be strange having to PAY for a ticket, isn't it? Should be a more relaxed game for you to be able to watch it all.

Hope they'll pull it off for you.

Shark tank, duck pond, bat cave, who cares. Wings can win anywhere.

Wings 3

Ducks 1

GO WINGS GO!!!

It would be awesome if someone named their arena the "Bat Cave".

In the event that I am ever a billionaire, and buy a franchise, and build an arena, I am totally doing it.

Tell me that wouldn't make a cool jersey logo :)

Looking forward to the game tonight, I like the weekend late night games much better than mid-week. Hopefully the Wings have a good game tonight and tomorrow.

Hockeytown, you need to take Ozzie off the injured list since he's backing up Jimmy tonight :)

Yes. It leaves more time for a few pre-game drinks. Without the need to arise hungover again and having to slug out another day a work in that condition.

On another note. Hudler could really win back our hearts tonight by challenging Parros...........and winning.

Brad Stuart's family still lives in the San Jose area. He's been to Boston, Calgary, LA, and Detroit in that time. Sometimes it's easier to have a stable place for your children to grow up, and have dad go make money where he can. I think these situations are more common in sports, and in regular life than we would think.

Doesn't Pavel's family stay in Russia still??? (not sure)

I'm not sure about Rusty's reasons, but Stuie's family moved out here once he signed long-term. They didn't move when he was a rental because his wife was due (baby was born during the first round of the playoffs IIRC). Now they live in Detroit, but his step-daughter's father is back in Cali.

Svetlana is living in Russia since Elizabeth is going to school there. They had lived in Detroit when Elizabeth was younger, but moved when she got to be school-aged.

This has been As the Puck Turns.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled GDT...

youd think that with the family gone and players all over the place there would be alot of cheating going on. if not from the players than the hot, lonely hockey wives stressed out from raising the children.

youd have to be a fool to hook up with a hockey wife though, sounds like a perfect situation to get your teeth knocked in...

Are you sure about Stewie? I swear I've heard about Babcock giving him a few days off, to go visit his family. I also thought I've heard Kenny and Murph ( or Mickey) talking about his family still being there. Maybe I'm just imagining that. Another symptom of my refusing to grow up, no matter how old I may get.
